Video: #MeetMeMonday: Leadership, not ideology

There's a lot of speculation about who's left-leaning and who's right-leaning among city council candidates. I don't think that's particularly helpful. City councilors are the "board of directors" of the corporation of the city. They need to make decisions based on the data before them, best practices, budgets, timing and the common vision for the community. We don't need voting blocks on council, we need people with different backgrounds and perspectives who work together for the best possible outcome for the city. 

When you prioritize projects in your home: fix the roof, put on a new deck or redecorate, do you think in terms of ideology or left-right? Probably not. You make decisions based on the urgency, the needs and benefits and your budget. Right? ... or is that Left?
